One Music School Overview


We live in an exciting time!

Technology is rapidly developing and opening up new opportunities in both music and education. Never before have we enjoyed this kind of personal access to professional teachers and industry experts from the comfort of our own home. With these new capabilities in mind, we set out to create a platform that gives students multiple options and opportunities to develop their skills as musicians.


| The One Music School YouTube Channel

Our YouTube channel features a growing library of instructional videos that our students and student all over the world can access free of charge. The YouTube channel serves multiple purposes:

Our YouTube channel allows us to provide additional instruction to our students. They can explore songs and new techniques at a time and place that is convenient for them, when they are the most receptive to learning.

For parents/students who are considering taking music lessons with us, it allows them to get to know Katie and hopefully feel more comfortable with her as a teacher. Of course, if you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact us.

Finally, it allows us to give back to the music community by providing high-quality, family-friendly lessons absolutely free of charge.

| Online Music Lessons

For students and parents with busy schedules or for those who live in areas with harsh climate, online lessons are a great way to cut down on travel time while still receiving the same high-quality personal instruction as a classroom setting. It also provides opportunities to learn from teachers who would otherwise be inaccessible based on their location. Visit our Online Lessons page to learn more.


| Private Lessons in Appleton, WI

For students who live in the Fox Cities area, private music lessons with Katie are available at her studio in downtown Appleton. We have a variety of times available for private lessons; visit our Music Lessons in Appleton, WI page to learn more.


| Group Lessons in Appleton, WI

Katie also offers group music lessons in groups of 2, 3, or 4. This is a great way for individuals, families, and friends to reduce the expenses of private lessons while still maintaining the highest level of instruction inside and out of the classroom. In addition to being a great value, it’s also a nice way to make new friends and learn from other musicians that are at a similar skill level.

| Lesson Recordings

Did you know that the average student forgets 30-70% of what they learned within just a few hours of their lesson? On top of that, each day that passes by without practice, the student will lose another 50% of what’s left. Needless to say, the last thing a parent or student wants is to be paying for lessons (plus drive time and gas), only to spend most of their lesson time relearning old content from the previous week.

A free option available to all of our online and local students is to have their lesson recorded. This allows students to review EVERYTHING they learned in the previous lesson, not just the parts they can remember; and they can do it at a time when they are most receptive to learning. It also creates a new level of transparency between the parent and teacher, allowing parents to review all of the content that their children are learning.

For students who want to expand on what they’ve learned during their classroom time, they also have access our always-growing library of instructional videos via our YouTube channel.

This combination truly creates an opportunity for full lesson-retention, and puts students in a position where they are able to progress at a much faster rate compared to traditional music lessons.
